Featuring live performances by (in order of appearance):

Julian Kytasty and Michael Andrec, champions of the many-stringed traditional Ukrainian bandura – plus special guests – in a special Brooklyn taste of Julian’s Bandura Downtown series.

The Bulgarian vocal stylings of Black Sea Hotel, Ltd. special two-voice unit

Les Chauds Lapins, who revisit French popular song from the first half of the last century – with a particular affection for Charles Trenet and the banjo-ukelele

Colombian guitarist Sebastian Cruz’s new Latin-rooted genre-busting jazz / improv ensemble Cheap Landscape Quartet

Thanks to our superstar crew: Engineers Bil Bowen and Gil Shuster, PA's Trent Wolbe (also staff photographer), Katie Gentile and Bethany Ryker; and Liz French on the board at FMU. Thanks as always to Olivier Conan of Barbes. And best wishes to Irene Trudel, our tech guru who usually co-hosts the TSP Barbes remotes. Irene made these remotes possible to begin with, and had planned to join us as usual. But she could not participate due to a sudden family emergency.

Interesting songwords note: Tsar Murat Mara dumashe relates to the marriage of Mara Brankovic to Ottoman Sultan Murad II in the mid 15th century. She came from a well connected Serbian political family and was a significant diplomat for the Ottoman empire, especially during their long war with Venice. Tsar Murat says to Mara Mara you beautiful Bulgarian girl. Let's go - and make you a turk. To sit on a high balcony and wear yellow gold In other versions in Macedonia, the song goes on to say: I will make an offering for you At Sultan Selim Cami (mosque) in Edirne At Istanbul’s Holy Wisdom (Orthodox cathedral that became a mosque)) Damned be you, Selim’s Cami, Damned be you, Holy Wisdom, I only want the True Faith for myself Our beautiful Faith, Every Sunday is the Great Day.
